Clarins Colour Quench Lip Balms Are My Favourite Lip Glosses Ever. What Are Yours?

Clarins Colour Quench Lip Balms in Strawberry Sorbet, Delhi Nude and Sweet Papaya - I'm wearing Delhi Nude in the photo.

Last year I wore Strawberry Sorbet and Sweet Papaya from the Clarins Colour Quench Lip Balm range pretty much all summer long. I recently got my hands on Delhi Nude, out now as part of the brand's Indian inspired Enchanted Summer collection, and I fell in love with these glosses all over again.

I'd go so far as to say they're my favourite glosses ever, and here's why:

- they're a gloss/balm hybrid, so they're non sticky with a lovely texture, but they still look lovely and glossy on the lips

- the colours are really pretty - there are 8 shades in the range with a further two released as part of this summer's collection

- they all have the same delicious fruity taste and smell

- they're moisturising and care for your lips, with ingredients like mango oil, hyaluronic acid and vitamin E

- at 15 ml, they're massive, and they're better value than ever. Last year they retailed at €20, and this year, Delhi Nude and Jaipur Pink are priced at €17.79.

Have you tried these, and what's your favourite gloss of all time?

Karen said...

I'm in THE LOVE with Nude Dehli, have used it every day since I got my mitts on it.

Maybelline's new Colorsensations creamy glosses are also fab or Kiehl's.

In fairness, I'm a gloss fiend, never claimed to be anything else ;) x

The Dior ones are my fave- subtle shimmer and the packaging is sooooo cute!

I've always wanted to try this gloss out, thanks for the review. My fav gloss of all time is Loreal Glamshine - I have very single shade they've made, the glittery particles somehow makes lips look fuller

I have one of these in peach nectar and it is rather lovely! I wouldn't mind checking out the new ones in the range!x

Chanel! Love the texture! :)

I have to agree with you 100% here Emma! They've been my favourite lip balm/gloss for the past 7 years! Although I haven't tried the new formula yet, but I'm sure I'll love it! Love the colours you've chosen, think I'd go with strawberry sorbet!

Love trying new glosses and a gloss/balm hybrid can't be bad! My favourite gloss of all time though has got to be the Revlon Colourburst lipglosses. x

Makeup Over Mind said...

Hmmm, don't honestly know if I have a favourite lipgloss! I did buy a Chanel one that I wore to death a few years ago, but I probably spend more on lipsticks in the past 2 years...I'm out of the lipgloss loop I fear! :( These sound lovely though...:)

I've heard such good things about these Clarins glosses! I def need to pick one up for summer! I used to love my MAC glosses but they are a bit to sticky!
